Hip tips for making the best strawberry pretzel salad:
- Feel free to use raspberries and raspberry gelatin if you prefer a more tart berry flavor.
- Throw a few blueberries on top and you’ll have a red, white, and blue patriotic dessert for Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Labor Day! 🇺🇸
- I’ve made this recipe with frozen and fresh strawberries. It really is a matter of preference and will be delicious either way.
- Add chocolate syrup drizzle to the top – it gives you that little bit of chocolate fix that pairs so nicely with the strawberry flavor!
